number of bills that were written by republicans that were included in the affordable care act, amendments that i was involved with that were included and like in any legislative process, some that i advocated for were not included in the final bill. so unlike this bill, which had no hearing and no markup in any form, because the gentleman from texas is right, the bill number, this bill number didn't -- it came from the senate. that's a normal process around here. we have sometimes bills from the senate we approve, sometimes they originate here and go over there. this bill number, this title came from something else and they approved it a reconciliation. but the affordable care act, the bill that led to it, went through my committee, i remember being up until i think 7:00 in the morning, we went straight through the night under chairman miller, making a number of amendments. some passing and some not. sometimes i was on the prevailing side, sometimes not. we had a lively discussion, amendments from democrats and republicans, some of which made it into the final bill and some of which didn't. that's the legislative process.
